    does it stay that way if you leave it on?

    most of the time it settles after a few minutes, or tapping the bottom plate might help..

    It is a familiar thing... some worse than others.

    Is the noise like air, or is there a mechanical noise too? In the last case it would help to peel the sticker off, put a drop of sewing oil(you should have it for your silver rods anyway, if not, buy it!) on it. That should to the trick
